Default making root beer

I don't know the root beer kit that you bought, but if the yeast is
going like mad, then CO2 is being generated. You probably have to
wait a week or more for the carbonation to be reasonable.

It sounds like your retailer also told you to skip step2 here. Thats
the wait a while step.

when I started my wine kit, I also tried to do a gallon of homemade
root beer i also picked up(on a lark)

I am pretty sure i followed directions closely, but I am not getting
any bubbles yet, although the yeast in the wine is going like mad. I
think i may have mixed the yeast in too hot a water. does champane
yeast act differently?
